I think Joe might be right about the shop vac not having the airflow. I plane curly maple and jatoba with no problems. I did try planing with no DC once when my old DC broke. It left awful chatter marks and made a HUGE mess. I doubt it will help, but maybe you could try a 2.5” to 4” adapter and hook that up to your planer’s chute. Whatever happens, make sure you let us know what works to correct it. Good luck!
